What is Ebony Burl?
Ebony burl is a type of wood that is characterized by its dark color and wavy grain pattern. It is often used in the production of high-end furniture, decorative items, and other luxury products because of its unique appearance and durability. The term "burl" refers to a type of wood grain pattern that is characterized by a swirling or "crazy" appearance, which is caused by the presence of abnormal growths on the tree. Burl wood is often highly prized for its decorative value and is used to create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces.
